A nice twist to have Casca forced to work for the Brotherhood. The story plays out fast and bloodily. Excellent pace and nice resolution. Somehow you know Casca will punish those who seek to use and punish him but Tony keeps you in suspense until it finally happens. Great!

5.0 out of 5 stars Casca: Sword of the Brotherhood,September 20, 2012
Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
This review is from: CASCA: Sword of the Brotherhood (CASCA: The Eternal Mercenary, #35) (Perfect Paperback)

I have bought all of the series of the Casca books from Amazon. I don’t read them for I give them as gifts to my sons for the both like this series and have been reading them since they were teengers. Both of them have the complete set up to the latest copy. They tell me they love the books and have gone back and reread some of the copies.

My favourite of Tony’s books so far. In a rare twist, the eternal Mercenary finds himself working for the arch enemy, The brotherhood. On a mission to take fetch his famous spear back for the elder, in a race against time to save his girl from conversion. The fight scenes, particularly at the end, are brilliant.

waking up in a cell isn’t the usual start to a casca story and before he knows it Casca is face to face with the man responsible for trying to cause him relentless suffering and pain.. he must travel far in a mission which for any casca fan, reminisces the original story, powerful stuff. There is a brilliant ending to this book, which I won’t give away but, doesn’t happen until the very end of the book so it keeps you reading that extra page.. until you know exactly what happens.

this book gets my first 5/5, it’s original and unpredictable in many ways.. hopefully there will be a follow up at some point?

One of the best cases Tony roberts Casca stories so far. Absolutely a must read. Love how it starts of in the near present then Casca having to work with the Brotherhood to retreive his spearing in order to save his woman, Knowing the whole time he will be double crossed. I was always wondering how he was going to get revenge. The back story of how his woman was being brainwashed by the brotherhood lent to why he has to put up with so much insanity instead of just walking away. As I was reading the part where he was captured and about to be tortured, it was like how the hell is he getting out of this situation. The final confrontation, what happened to the spear and ending were brilliant. Then back to the near present. This book will keep you wondering what will happen next. Great book.

Thanks – this entire novel was written purely to put a certain object in a certain place so that it could be ‘found’ by Casca four and a half centuries later in the events of The Crusader.

The final fight sequence in the corridor of the Brotherhood sanctuary was inspired by a fight scene in the film ‘V For Vendetta’.
